Emergency Flood Relief - Karachi
Dear HOPE Supporters,
On August 27, 2020, the city of Karachi, Pakistan experienced the highest ever recorded rainfall in 12 hours which resulted in widespread flooding and damage and a death toll of at least 35 persons. Pakistan was just recovering from its second wave of coronavirus deaths when the devastation of torrential cyclones hit Karachi. Major infrastructure and buildings have been buried under several feet of water while landlines, cellular lines, and electricity are suspended due to the apocalyptic damage. In the city of 22 million people, where an alarming 30 percent live in urban slums below the poverty line, citizens are struggling to find hope for the future. HOPE USA has launched relief efforts to help recover the city and move forward. We are providing flood victims with the following intervention methods:
We are differentiating ourselves from other NGO's in Pakistan by distributing Proctor & Gamble PuR water sachets to flood victims and educating them about the the dangers of using contaminated water. HOPE is the only NGO in Pakistan which has been given the privilege of collaborating with P&G in the distribution of PuR sachets. Along with demonstrations on how to use the purifying sachets correctly, the HOPE team is spreading knowledge about hand-washing and basic hygiene to prevent disease transmission. Our goal is to deploy teams to flood-stricken areas and provide food, shelter, and medical care while also taking the opportunity to educate the public about the importance of clean water in disease prevention.
